Wright R-3350 Radial Engine

Two-stage supercharger...fuel injected...turbocharged. No doubt one of the most powerful radial engines ever produced, the Turbo-Compound R-3350-93 built by the Wright Aeronautical Division produces over 3500 HP.  This particular engine came from a Lockheed L-1649 Super Constellation owned by Howard Hughes and TWA.
